Plan International at the United Nations

Putting girls’ rights at the top of the agenda at the United Nations in New York and Geneva

We are Plan International; we work together with children, young people, supporters and partners to strive for a just world,where we are all equal.

To do that we tackle the root causes of the challenges and inequalities that children and young girls face. We’re there for children from birth until adulthood and we enable them to prepare for and respond to crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

Our work at the United Nations is key to delivering our global ambition of transforming the lives of millions of girls and dismantling structures of inequality and discrimination. While we advance the rights of all children and young people in all their diversity, we focus particularly on girls and young women and the specific vulnerabilities they face.

We won’t stop until we are all equal.

Girls’ Rights Platform

Girls’ Rights are Human Rights:

Positioning girls’ rights at the heart of the international agenda

Plan International has developed the Girls’ Rights Platform to help NGOs, young activists, diplomats, UN agencies and academia bring girls from the margins to the centre of the international agenda. This platform offers a number of innovative tools, including the world’s most comprehensive human rights database, training tools for girls’ rights advocates and a UN debate tracker to hold States to account.
